Critical comparative analysis
critical comparative analysis
At this point in the semester, we have looked at even more authors and a much larger smattering of their work. The textbooks have touched upon a number of varied points of interest from differing schools of philosophical thought. The books and our discussions have addressed the major paradigm shifts in American Literature (and history) from the Civil War to the middle of the 20th Century. The authors’ points of view have come into play as we have muddled our way through this often confusing span of decades. More importantly, your points of view have begun to permeate the discussion, giving it a much more relevant and modern scope. (Alice, while in Wonderland, might say, “moderner and moderner.”)
Once again, topic selection is up to you. However, this time, the scope of the project is going to be a bit more pointed than before. As with the first project, everything we have approached thus far this semester is fair game, as is anything we will be reading next week (please use something different than you did for the first paper). What I would like to see this time is a critical comparative analysis in which you look at more than one work and more than one author and comparatively analyze them.
This is the long paper – about six to seven pages long – the one that requires at least four sources cited within it, in MLA format of course which means that you must include a works cited page. The works cited page is not one of the six to seven pages of your paper. And five full pages plus one line on a sixth does not constitute six pages. Make sure you use credible sources like those found through the library databases.
Do not cite Wikipedia, SparkNotes, CliffNotes, 123HelpMe.com, cheattheprof.com, Gradesaver.com, MegaEssays.com, or any other source that subverts the research process—substantial grade reductions will occur if you use sources such as those listed above.
